    Guys, it is possible to somewhat modify the monitor.inf file (or perhaps something else?) that the lowest offered resolution to switch Windows 2000 SP4 into is, like in XP, 800x600?

    I managed to setup the monitor.inf file I use to offer me highest 1024x768 resolution easily, just using the HKR,,MaxResolution,,"1024,768" - but can I adjust lowest resolution too?
    And how?

    My monitor.inf file now used:

    Hmmm, and what is the purpose of your guide? That give me a hell of resolutions to see, and my aim is to REDUCE the number of resolutions to choose.
    I actually sucesfully managed to hide resolutions past 1024x768, not I just wondering how to hide the ones bellow 800x600 ;)

    Internet once again worked as great machine for misunderstanding, or my english is that bad? :eek:

    Well, I just wanted them to go away :)
    For not obscuring the selection anyone, perhaps? Fun fun too?
